In Topsy Turvy Wibbly Wobbly NFL, Bucs are 2 games out of first place, 1 game out of #1 draft pick!

Pete Rozelle is watching football from heaven, smiling upon his dream of NFL Parity. Although I believe parity is less of a thing since the redistributing of teams in 2002, here are the Bucs in the middle of the most incredible turnabout season in years. If you think the Rams going for it yesterday takes the cake, look at the Bucs, who Bucs are chasing the Panthers, or are they...

Column: A nation grieves and the NFL plays on

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist Americans grieved in front of their television sets on a brutally grim Sunday afternoon 50 years ago as a horse-drawn caisson took the body of President Kennedy from the White House to lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda.

Biz Blitz: John F. Kennedy and the NFL, the league's delayed reaction to tragedy

Bottom Line: Sports heals most when people hurt worse. The ghost of Jack Kennedy haunts electronic America this week with the 50th Anniversary of his death this Friday, November 22. The bubble in the Bell Curve of blog readers is about 35 years old, so most networked Americans have no first hand memory of the president. Those of us of a certain age recall our every moment...
